5 out of 5 eggsPleasantly surprised...

Pros: Good build quality, solid construction. About the size of an original XBOX. Roomier than the small Shuttles I've worked with, yet similar in volume. Media extras like card reader/DVI a big plus, as well as price. For the cost of a mid-level motherboard you get motherboard, case, power supply, heatsink and decent(great for onboard) Nvidia video in a neat little package. Faux optical drive front works better than what I've seen with shuttles costing 2x as much, no need to fiddle or adjust. Specs say it only has 1 SATA header, but it has two so don't be afraid to get a SATA optical drive with it. It does however only have 1 3.5" bay and 1 5.25". System is pretty quiet, I'd compare it to a laptop where you can hear it spin up when it's working hard, though my laptop is louder than this when it's working hard.

Cons: Case cover is the sleeve type, a little tricky to get back on. Tape keeping front doors closed left a slight sticky smudge when removed.

Other Thoughts: I suppose it could have more in the way of expansion slots, etc, but for what it is I think it's great. Would buy again for a home theater setup or just a cheap, good looking build for family. Add memory, drives, and proc and you're done!

4 out of 5 eggsgood and small

Pros: I picked this up to build a PVR machine. I was looking for something small that had most of what i wanted built in. The built in DVI out was probably the most important feature, so i can hook it up to an HDTV with a dvi-hdmi cable. It is very small, which is good and also very quiet. Just add some ram, a cpu, harddrive, and DVD drive, and you've got a great media center PC

Cons: Tight space inside. Everything went together fine, except for the tv tuner card (Hauppauge 150), which barely fit in the space for the pci slot, and it would only fit in one of the two slots because of the way the metal casing on the riser card is.
Make sure the card that you're installing isnt much wider than the metal bracket or it won't fit.

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't boot at first, was getting 1 long 2 short beeps, that code means your ram is bad, replaced the ram and it worked fine!
Great price for this little machine, just beware of the tight PCI space.

4 out of 5 eggssmall is good, small is bad

Pros: darn small. wanted something small but with 2 pci slots and a relatively powerful psu. it is pretty quiet. nvidia ethernet well supported by linux. for the price there is nothing else close to this good.

Cons: darn small. it is jammed inside. better get an sata optical drive, the ide cable just makes an ugly mess. nvidia vga not so well supported by linux (I will never use the proprietary binary driver)

Other Thoughts: there are 2 sata ports on the board, not 1 as the newegg specs say. had an extra 939 chip and some ddr lying around, otherwise I may have bought the am2 version (which has exactly the same specs, 'cept for am2 and ddr2). be nice to fit another internal hd but there is just no room. newegg was sold out when I wanted this, bought from a respectable competitor for little less money... but now I wish I'd waited a few days, newegg is #1.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This unit is a sleek looking and quite machine.

Cons: Unfortunately, this card doesn't have a powersupply adequite enough to power an HD3000 card and a PVR 350 at the same time. There are no after market powersupply that will fit in this case. So for me it can't be used as a mythtv media center.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat htpc box, tiny and out of the way

Pros: Small; quiet; everything needed is bundled, including hs/fan, ide and sata cables; assembly comes apart very cleanly and easily. Software drivers easy to setup, practically the same as the Asus mATX 939 board.

Cons: I needed more usb ports for my usb tv tuner, usb MCE ir receiver, usb wifi, and usb hd tv tuner; so I threw in a PCI usb card in there. When initially started, CPU fan will blast like a hair dryer for 2 seconds before Q-Fan kicks in. Worst thing: mine came from the factory with the psu set at 220v; took me an hour to figure out the psu wasn't dead. IDE cable is quite long, have to tuck a lot back in. Case/chassis kinda attracts fingerprints, have to wipe it after working on it. Would have been nice to have SPDIF on the back instead of on the front.

Other Thoughts: Losing one of the PCI slots for a PCI-E would have been nice, but since both slots stem from one PCI slot on a riser card, I guess that wouldn't be too feasable except with a proprietary riser card. The design is such that it looks best vertically; you can place it horizontally, but then the vertical bottom will show, and it's a bit of an eyesore if you see it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent SFF case

Pros: Small, Quiet and everything you need for a basic HTPC box on additional TV's or for use as a basic computer. Nvidia 6150 video with DVI!

Cons: Limited drive space (one) so make sure you get the size you'll need for later. Pick a quiet DVD Drive! That's the only thing I hear in the case. Only 2 PCI slots.

Other Thoughts: Bought two of these for my 80 year old parents. They are quiet and take up little desk space. The 2 PCI's are used up by a Hauppage PVR150 and ZONET Wireless. I have them connected to 32" LCD's so they can watch TV and surf at the same time. Allows them to tap into the main HTPC server with Beyond TV as well. Picture looks great with the 6150 video, I was a bit worried. Streams SDTV hicely to them as well. One is running a 3500+, the other an Opteron 144, both 1GB, 160GB WD drives, and NEC DVD-RW's. The Newer P4 versions of the Pundits have a PCIe slot if you think upgrading is in your future go that route. For me with spare AMD parts laying around, this was a cheap, fast build and works great!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very nice looking, very quite, installed my media center XP running all my movies in the living room.

Cons: Very tight fit on the drives. I ordered a smaller heatsick not knowing it came with a heatsick.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case.

Pros: Quiet, small, fuctional, works well with linux. This is a great case for my MythTV on Ubuntu setup I've got.

Cons: MY one PVR-150 barely fit, I don't know if I'll be able to get two in there without some fiddling, it will be interesting when I order the second. Blue leds are too bright, although that's not hard to fix if it's a problem.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended.

4 out of 5 eggsexcellent sff with one gotcha

Pros: Excellent product, stable, quiet, small.

Cons: Not all PCI cards fit. The Hauppauge PVR 500 does not.

Other Thoughts: I'm surprised the optical port is on the front, behind the panel. I can't imagine you'd frequently be needing access.

4 out of 5 eggsfirst SFF PC - pleased.

Pros: HDTV optimized output settings, HD audio makes a difference. Pretty good deign and build quality. DVI output! Great card reader - load the card reader software which is a nice touch by Asus. Great price for the features.

Cons: Gets a bit warm. Installation was a bit tough, but expected. Only 2 USB ports on the rear. Why is the optical audio output in the front?

Other Thoughts: Using a 3200+, 2GB RAM, Linksys WMP54G WLAN NIC, dinovo keyboard set. Outputing to a Samsung 46" DLP via DVI.
